The issues of mental illness and substance abuse among past and present members of the military have received increasing press coverage over the past few years, along with a growing awareness of the need for support and prevention resources.

While there are many unique mental health resources available, navigating the system and finding appropriate help can be a challenge. After research across the resources available on the web, the AAC team noticed the absence of a centralized resource designed to help understand the basics of addiction and navigate the veterans’ and active military support systems. They decided to fill this gap of knowledge.

The result is this page:

This page summarizes available governmental, organizational and other resources and makes them easily accessible to those searching for assistance. It includes 48 citations of the latest studies and 10 external resources for veterans seeking help. I hope that the quality of this page and the importance of the subject matter merits inclusion on your page alongside the other resources you have provided – or elsewhere on your website. I believe that it fulfills an important need and will be of great assistance to veterans seeking help.
